Robert Gordon University is delighted to see an increase in the number of students from Thailand choosing to come and study with us.

Thailand flag 152The courses many of our Thai students pursue include MSc Oil & Gas Engineering, MSc International Marketing Management, MSc International Business and our Pre-Sessional English course.

Our Thai students tell us they find Aberdeen a friendly, historic and cosmopolitan city that caters for all lifestyles, tastes and cultures. Thai students generally have found it easy to adapt to the city as it is small enough to find their way around, served by good local public transport but which also has the buzz of a thriving student social scene.

We try to visit Thailand twice per year at least, but out with those visits we have trusted agents based locally who can tell you more about us, and help you with an application.
